BREWED IN THE HEART OF CONNEMARA
Here at Connemara Brewing Co., we are very proud of our beers. Our focus is on making a small number of beers really well - consistently high-quality beers is what we’re all about. Connemara is blessed with some of the highest quality water in the world, which combined with the highest quality raw materials, and crafted by the know-how of our world-class brewers, results in beers with consistently high quality.
All our beers are made from scratch here in our brewery in the heart of Connemara, using traditional recipes and the best possible local ingredients which we source directly from our carefully selected producers.
APPROACHABLE - BALANCED - CONTEMPORARY
Two perfectly balanced beers that complement each other. Focusing on a small number of beers allows us to put all our effort into making sure we can ensure we deliver a perfect product to you every time.
Our signature product is a refreshing, clean and robust lager. It features a pleasingly spicy and floral bitterness from our Žatecký hops, backed up with a slight maltiness from a blend of Irish and continental grains, and a crisp clean finish from our specially selected yeast and open fermentation process.
Leading with a lager demonstrates our ambition, professionalism and technique. This beer tastes as pure as the soft Connemara water used to make it.
Our Connemara Ale is juicy and full of flavour. Our master crafted recipe produces a taste explosion from start to finish. A perfect hop medley and yeast blend provides our ale with a flavour that will make you want more.
Irish ale has a long and dignified history. We've kept to those traditional values by producing an open fermented ale with a reddish hue and a beautifully sweet palate that is bursting with hop flavour while remaining low in bitterness. It's like Connemara sunset in a glass.
Our brewery is led by one of the foremost brewers in Ireland, and a real west of Ireland woman. Aine moved home to Galway following a phenomenally successful and diverse career in brewing. Aine has been brewing continuously since finishing her science degree almost 20 years ago (further complimented by a Masters in Brewing & Distilling). She has started and ran both start-up craft and large international breweries and now invests all that experience and skill into producing what we believe are some of Ireland’s best beers.
After 10 years in NewZealand, Phil moved back to Ireland and came west to create our brews in the start of 2022.
He specialises in styles ranging from traditional to extremely experimental and is comfortable with both.
His enthusiasm for brewing is very contagious and is full of passion
